VG247: Microsoft has announced Kinect’s US launch line-up, which consists of 17 titles, and has just announced the European line-up
is all I can see
so many fitness games... why?
Because they are going after the Wii crwod and soccer moms. With these titles, Kinect is going to sell huge. For hardcore gamers, there is not one game worth getting at this point, but that's what MS had planned all along. Kinect is directed towards the Wii demographic
Because we all fat :P
because kinect is the only motion control that can do like it should be so is dance games.
So Microsoft changes the definition of "exclusive" to 2 or more devices. And now "Launch Games" mean coming out months later. I give up, MS has won this generation when it comes to hype/sales. Now can Nintendo & Sony continue just making good hardware & games? Xbox fans need their own site to celebrate marketing campaigns, the rest of us can sit around n4g talking about gaming news. Deal?
It even calls fitness programs games and Kinect "something that has never been seen before"
In reality a game that comes out for PC, ps3, 360, but not wii is still exclusive. Think about it like a club, an exclusive club that allows both members and guests of members is still exclusive, even though more then 1 type of person is going to it.
lol, look at the headline, I could be wrong but usually if a headline starts with the word kinect, its almost certainly not going to be about your favorite ps3 game. I know its confusing for you so I don't blame you for getting so upset because you keep accidentally finding yourself on every kinect thread, which interestingly also causes you to pound on your keyboard and enlighten us all with your important words of wisdom. OK, sure thanks, just remember to look for key indicators next time, it will save you alot of frustration, considering the fact that you don't have to read news about kinect. nag, seriously its true theres alot of news on this site but the beauty of it all is you don't have to read every thread. Im personally interested to see whats coming for kinect in the future and how well the launch games will appeal to casuals....oh look luckily I guess I chose the right thread. psst, I'm not bragging but it was my 1st try too, just sayin'. JOY
Need a tissue? I have one for all of you and the ones not in here yet. EDIT There there it will be alright PS3 will still be here tomorrow ;) It's just downright entertaining to see so many PS3 fans so worried about Kinec,t they seem to be giving Kinect more attention then the people buying it on day one. Every Kinect article has more PS3 fans in them. LMAO I can't help but laugh at the way PS3 fans have taken this so personally but now I sort of feel sorry a group of teenage and adult men would behave in such a way(spending 24/7 on n4g running smear campaigns like children on the playground)
yes, dying of laughter at the fact you guys are happy MS is selling a webcam that barely works to unknowing masses & spending more on an advertising campaign than gaming & hardware quality.
...in the Justin Beiber & Ryan Seacrest Kinect article.
This guy really needs help
Three dance titles, three sports titles, and five, five frickin' fitness titles. One could actually guess the PS3 is the last bastion of good gaming. The Kinect has too many "Sports" titles to not expect shovelware, but I can say the same to a lesser degree for the Move. The fitness titles are too many too; likely to have some of those titles on the Move *sigh*. Shovelware is shovelware. This is more like core vs. casual than PS3 vs. 360 or Move vs. Kinect. I'm thankful that I have some hardcore games for Move.
u always commenting stfu ur a 14 year old bitch
Half a billion dollars worth of shovel ware, it would seem.
so many fitness games, won't be getting it, I'm fit as it is with a program already. I want my console for VIDEOGAMES, not work outs. bright side - lots of fanboys will get fit =3
Too much fitness games.
Yep and people don't exercise during the winter.
New Years is the time for gym memberships.
Tell that to Wii Fit! Whom by the way, alone outsold any exclusive (one platform excluding PC) "hardcore" game I know of! It sold 22+ million! Heck it even outsells most multi-platform games!!!
"Be warned: “launch portfolio” doesn’t mean “day one”. Expect clarification on this soon." So does it launch with these games or not?
How many games have "sports" in the title?? lol Honestly, I dont get how some of the people on this site can defend this when even the legit xbox owners/gamers on nelsons blog are ripping it up.. I do hope they think of something interesting for core gamers, I'm not against kinect.. I think it would be pretty cool for interface control but that isn't enough to convince me to buy it.. and that lineup is just.. wow..
Some people like to try new things.....i just see it interesting dance central and after i buy P90X i see real feature in kinect for exercise like p90x.
"Be warned: “launch portfolio” doesn’t mean “day one”. Expect clarification on this soon." I`d like to know the timeframe Microsoft considers a "launch." A week? A month? A year? I`m sorry Microsoft, but unless the consumers get to play the game the day Kinect comes out, it`s not a launch game. You don`t get to make up your own definitions.
"You don`t get to make up your own definitions." Too late, they've already done that!
Whoever buys this shit,.. I am not even going to comment on Kinect articles for a while,.. Do enjoy being ripped off,..for your fan-boy stance,.. For what it is capable of doing should be 40usd max,.. they are wasting 500milions which is the retail cost of 3,4milion Kinects,.. into tricking you to buying this crap ,.. lol did they not say they expect 3-4milions,.. are they buying them all or what,.. ''to make it popular'' They could stamp out 10 AAA exclusives for you guys for that money,.. you re getting fucked,.. But you are used to it by now as consumers,.. with MS and xbox360 already,.. don't even feel it,.. Like you all have some sort of battered wife syndrome,..
=) your comment made me lol yep there's not one game in there that entices me to buy Kinect on launch day.
Parents begged by halo-mad kids to get expensive Kinect will regret getting one.
The kids will be the ones regretting it. Mom will be working out to Mel B.
Its funny cuz most of these games will sell more and review higher than PS MOVE games
So I guess you will be playing the Mel B. fitness game.
launch with 17 games, and if you add up all of their review scores it might equal a game that is a 17/100. eyetoy and poop games, i better hurry up and get this reserved
wow better games then move and that came out in september.
people forget fast.......360 and ps3 has not much at lunch ether.
they had at least SOMETHING good to play
how many titles had move at lunch?
I didn't eat move for lunch. I had a sandwich.
lol, sorry for my english!
Quantity =/= Quality
This lineup isn't very compelling. I bought a Wii for this kind of stuff, and don't care for it on my 360. Also, my livingroom is just too small to fit my entire self on that limited angle camera, and be able to move around much. Even if I wanted a game like Dance Central, I don't think I could play it. With the Move, I have enough room (for most games -- Sports Champions is a close fit). With the Wiimote, I have enough room. Kinect... no.
